  New Jewish cemetery in Voznesensk, Ukraine

According to ESJF European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative, the history of the New Jewish cemetery of Voznesensk is unclear. Presumably, it already existed in early 20th century. The IAJGS database refers to a gravestone that dates to 1918, but the ESJF expedition was unable to locate it. The old part of the cemetery contains some pre-war tombstones, including one from 1937. However, it is still possible that pre-war gravestones were brought from the Voznesensk Old cemetery, which was destroyed during WWII. Today, the cemetery is cared for by the local community. About six months ago, vandals moved ten tombstones from their original places, but they have been restored today. 

The cemetery is surrounded by a concrete fence from the northern side, and by a one metre high brick fence on its other sides. There is a metal gate, decorated with stars of David, on the cemetery's southern side. There are about 600 gravestones. The cemetery includes a ruined old area with less than 10 preserved gravestones, which are mostly broken or lacking inscriptions, as well as a large post-WWII part, which is operational today. There is a caretaker's house located on the cemetery site, presumably built in 1966. 

Date of oldest tombstone: 1937
Date of newest tombstone: 2018
